Weekend Roundup



Wow, where did January go?! I can’t believe tomorrow is the start of February. I feel like we just started the new year!  I wasn’t a ballerina growing up and would never claim to own a dance floor, but I am obsessed with skirts that remind me of tutus. Maybe I’m a wanna be ballerina?!


This weekend I am…

  • indulging in a mani/pedi at my favorite nail salon, Sundrops Nail Spot
  • making a return trip to ChopShop. Finally tried it on Thursday after hearing everyone rave about it. Definitely lives up to the hype!
  • excited to see the Super Bowl commercials on Sunday and cheer on the Denver Broncos (but mostly the commercials)


I bought tickets to the Chihuly after Dark exhibit at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden for later this spring. I haven’t been to the Desert Botanical Gardens in a few years and I have a fascination with hand blown glass so this is the perfect combination for me.  I’m already looking forward to it!


I read this Women in the Workplace article from Harvard Business Review this week. It was an interesting summary of different research, especially the study on ethics.  It was also timely as the President mentioned women in the workplace in his State of the Union address this week.  I love the last line in this article about his reference to Mad Men.  Sorry Scrubs fans, but it’s true!


For those of you that live in Arizona, are you headed to the party…oh wait, I mean the Phoenix Open, this weekend? I’m going to pass on the craziness and spend some time doing my favorite things instead!
